Stay away from PIONEER!!!

Mark Hamilton, Amazon
26 December 2014
  • Summary: After 1 year of moderate use, I noticed the sound quality was getting worse. After 6 more months the unit stopped working. Along with this, in a low light room it is impossible to read buttons on face of unit. I would never by pioneer again!!

Poor Quality

SPDIF, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: Mine broke after only a couple months of use. Unfortunately it is already out of warranty (it sat in the box new for 9 months or so), and Pioneer won't even service it (which isn't obvious on their website, it just doesn't accept the model, which was very frustrating; I had to call them to figure...

Bad Luck With This One

Norm W, Amazon
11 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchased a Pioneer VSX-921 to replace an Insignia unit. The Pioneer worked flawlessly for several months, then the problems began. One by one it started dropping audio, but not the video, from each of the HDMI inputs.

Stay away from Pioneer

Jamie, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my old VSX-D309, and was very happy with it until it quit working roughly 80 days after purchasing it.

Piece of junk

MPG5, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: Bought this receiver a little over a year ago to update our home theater to HDMI. Researched a lot of receivers and decided on this one due to its good specs for the money. Had Pioneer before and all were great. Not this one. The worst user manual I've ever seen and I am tech savvy.

Beyond belief complicated

Smee.J, Amazon

  • Summary: Can't believe anyone could manage to make a simple thing (amplify a few noises from a few sources) so difficult. This is probably the worst thing I have ever purchased. I would urge anyone to look elsewhere. Sound is OK (little depth and very "clinical") but the day to day use is unfathomable.

Load of rubbish

Jmyers11 "Jxmyers", Amazon
2 January 2012
  • Summary: Just to qualify myself (and without wanting to sound like a loser) I studied degree level electronics, am very tech-savvy and would like to think I can wire up an amp. But in this case I was absolutely baffled. The whole exprience was horrendous.

vom Vorgänger enttäuscht, auch dieser nicht besser

buddy, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: Hatte diesen nach 1 Jahr Besitz des Vorgängermodells gekauft um Mediendateien besser über DLNA streamen zu können als der Vorgänger. Habe Twonkymedia Server und Logitech Squeezebox-Server auf einer NAS. Das alles funktioniert nur halbwegs.

Achtung! Falsche Angabe zu Apple Lossless!

Taylor Barton, Amazon
21 January 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe mir den Receiver in erster Linie zum hören von Internetradio und vor allem von gerippten CD vom NAS gekauft. Lt. Information zum Produkt auf der Pinoeer-Homepage können diverse Formate - unter anderem auch "Apple Lossless" - abgespielt werden.
